A temporary control zone has been imposed at a poultry farm in Lancashire in light of a suspect case of avian flu – all birds at the premises are being culled. The restrictions mean that all poultry farms within the 10 kilometre temporary control zone around the affected premises are not allowed to move poultry and other birds.

The decision to take precautionary action has been taken based on the clinical symptoms displayed by birds at the farm and emerging laboratory findings – laboratory tests are ongoing.
